It is time for the Australasian GNSS community to come together once again for the 2022 IGNSS Conference. IGNSS 2022 will be held in Sydney, Australia from 7 – 9 December 2022. IGNSS 2022 is Australasia’s premier conference and exhibit for technology, products and services in Positioning Navigation and Timing, including GNSS. Since our last conference, the Australian Space Agency and Geoscience Australia have begun developing a national Roadmap for PNT. The roadmap documents the capabilities of the PNT sector in Australia, as well as the decadal vision for new PNT capabilities and applications, including in space. The PNT Roadmap is also building on Geoscience Australia’s work on the Positioning Australia program, including the partnership with New Zealand to deliver and sustain the SouthPAN SBAS. As well as these overarching developments, IGNSS 2022 will examine the growing interest in alternatives to GNSS; including the hot topic of LEO PNT; where constellations of Low Earth Orbit satellites are being developed to deliver new PNT services. There will also be updates from existing GNSS System Providers as they start delivering new services such as signal authentication and increased accuracy. IGNSS 2022 will not only address the wave of new opportunities but also the risks posed by jamming, spoofing and cybersecurity threats. We will gather leaders in GNSS and PNT to examine the latest technology, present cutting edge research and discuss in open forums the implications for policy, market development and positioning infrastructure deployment. Sessions will cover the following topics and more: • Autonomy on land, air, sea and in space • Aviation and Avionics • Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems • Machine Guidance Applications in Agriculture, Construction and Mining • Maritime Applications • Unmanned Aerial Systems • Space applications of PNT in Earth orbit and for Lunar and Martian exploration • Positioning Infrastructure • GNSS Vulnerability, Resilience and Risk • Interference Detection and Mitigation • Policies and Standards • SBAS and Other Augmentations • Datums and Geodesy • National and International GNSS Developments • Emerging Application Areas for GNSS • Key Industries and their Reliance on GNSS • Embracing the Multi-GNSS Era • Cyber Security in PNT Applications and Infrastructure • Alternative PNT • State of the art in PNT algorithms and software development • GNSS Aiding and Sensor Fusion • Positioning in GNSS Denied Environments • Development of GNSS Receiver Hardware and Firmware • Precise position using Smartphones We encourage Early Career Researchers as well as Industry R&D to present their work. We hope you can join us!

Abstract Guidelines

  • Abstracts are being sought for presentation from government, industry & academia. 

  • All abstracts will be reviewed and should receive an outcome within approximately one week of submission.

  • Abstracts accepted for technical sessions are to be presented in person and cannot be done remotely.

  • Papers are optional and will not be reviewed.

We invite presentations that highlight the novelty of new technolgies, and provide R&D insight. We also encourage presentations that discuss interesting methodologies or applications.

Your abstract should provide a brief description of the content you plan to present, bearing in mind that this information will be published in the online conference program.

We suggest that industry presentations attempt to go beyond a simple sales pitch. If the Conference Technical Chair feels that your abstract leans too far in this direction, an amendment may be requested or you may be directed to consider a sponsorship package that includes time in the Sponsor Spotlight session.


Industry presenters may wish to consider bundling their registrations into a sponsorship package, which will include advertising perks as well as registrations. It may even save you money! Please check the sponsorships page for more details. Industry presenters who are not participating under a sponsorship package will need to register at speaker rates, and any accompanying colleagues should register at normal rates.
